UCLA physicists create world's smallest incandescent lamp
In an effort to explore the boundary between thermodynamics and quantum mechanics - two fundamental yet seemingly incompatible theories of physics - a team from the UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy has created the world's smallest incandescent lamp. View News Article (2009-05-07)


Northwestern researchers develop bistable nanoswitch
Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have been under intense study by scientists all over the world for more than a decade and are being thought of as ideal building blocks for nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). View News Article (2006-10-16)


UCLA researchers demonstrate fully printed carbon nanotube transistor circuits for displays
Since the invention of liquid crystal displays in the mid-1960s, display electronics have undergone rapid transformation.  View News Article (2011-12-01)


Armchair science: DNA strands that select nanotubes are first step to a practical 'quantum wire'
DNA, a molecule famous for storing the genetic blueprints for all living things, can do other things as well. In a new paper, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) describe how tailored single strands of DNA can be used to purify the highly desired "armchair" form of carbon nanotubes. Armchair-form single wall carbon nanotubes are needed to make... View News Article (2011-08-04)


Jefferson and Delaware researchers combine tiny nanotubes and antibodies to detect cancer
By coating the surfaces of tiny carbon nanotubes with monoclonal antibodies, biochemists and engineers at Jefferson Medical College and the University of Delaware have teamed up to detect cancer cells in a tiny drop of water. View News Article (2005-11-17)


The original nanoworkout -- Helping carbon nanotubes get into shape
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a new method of compacting carbon nanotubes into dense bundles. View News Article (2007-06-07)


Rice professor's nanotube theory confirmed
The Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, has experimentally confirmed a theory by Rice University Professor Boris Yakobson that foretold a pair of interesting properties about nanotube growth: That the chirality of a nanotube controls the speed of its growth, and that armchair nanotubes should grow the fastest. View News Article (2012-01-31)


Researchers help sort out the carbon nanotube problem
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and university researchers report a significant step toward sorting out the nanotube "problem"-the challenge of overcoming processing obstacles so that the remarkable properties of the tiny cylindrical structures can be exploited in new polymer composite materials of exceptional strength. View News Article (2005-07-27)


UConn chemists find secret to increasing luminescence efficiency of carbon nanotubes
Chemists at the University of Connecticut have found a way to greatly increase the luminescence efficiency of single-walled carbon nanotubes, a discovery that could have significant applications in medical imaging and other areas. View News Article (2009-03-06)


Batteries get a boost at Rice
Need to store electricity more efficiently? Put it behind bars. That's essentially the finding of a team of Rice University researchers who have created hybrid carbon nanotube metal oxide arrays as electrode material that may improve the performance of lithium-ion batteries. View News Article (2009-02-10)
